Prepping Sandeels

These are the most popular ways of mounting sandeels.  We have used orange line for clarity in these photos.  Since we generally fish clear water our personal preference is clear mono lines for traces and leader.

 The first example is the most popular for live baiting and mainly for catching bass.

The second method would be used for spinning and is ideal for mackerel, pollock, garfish and bass.

Both final examples would be used for general beach and rock fishing.
